Russ Martin: Seniors 'Will Become Part of this Legacy'
GRAND JUNCTION, Colo.--In a season of ups and downs for the new era of Colorado Mesa football, Saturday will mark the last time the seniors take the field at Stocker Stadium.
"For [the seniors] it was a tough situation having a new coaching staff come in," first-year head coach Russ Martin said. "But they've adapted well and they've actually been very good leaders for us.
"They will become part of this legacy and in that building, and the process that this will take over the next couple years of setting that first stone so that other players can follow through."
Under a new staff and revamped program, CMU came back from an 0-3 start to enter Saturday's final home game of the season 3-6 on the year and 3-4 in the RMAC.
The Mavs will take on Western State (1-8, 1-6 RMAC) whose only victory came over a winless Fort Lewis Colllege.
Quarterback Jason Haferman is still out with a knee injury, so Deke Cisco will get the start for the second straight week.
Kickoff set for 1 p.m.
